Jerry Jones: Stephen Jones didn’t snatch Johnny Manziel’s draft card from me

jerry jonesA book recently published by Jim Dent that claims that Stephen Jones took Johnny Manziel’s draft card away from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones so he couldn’t draft the former Texas A&M star this past May.

Jones claims the story is false.

“That didn’t happen,” Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We’re well aware that there are a lot of people looking at us in that room. You’d think we could act a little more organized than that.”

“Figuratively speaking it got close to that,” Jones said. “It certainly was a big debate going on at no place else other than my mind. There is no doubt it was a long thought on my part. Stephen certainly had his ideas. The rest of the room had other ideas. We had given this a lot of consideration in the draft room and out of the draft room with numbers of people sitting around talking about it.”
